Hyyge holidays — the art of staying cosy

Hygge is a lifestyle concept that has become increasingly popular over the last few years and just might be the key to enjoying the perfect cottage getaway in Cornwall. Pronounced “hoo-ga”, it is the Danish word that encapsulates the feeling of cosy contentment. Ever cosied up next to a fire with a book and a cuppa? You’ve probably felt hygge.

If you’re planning a winter break it might be wise to consider the Danish outlook on life, so we’ve put together a list of the best boltholes, cottages and hideaways to warm yourself during the long winter.


The Bolthole at Sunset Surf, Gwithian

The Bolthole At Sunset Surf Gwithian Forever Cornwall Unique Retreats 29019

Nestled on the wild dune landscape of St Ives bay is this little gem. Sleeping two, it is clear this cottage was designed with the “classic hygge” style in mind, making it the perfect base for a surfing holiday or comfy retreat for romance.


Roselyn Cottage, Fowey River

Who says you need to be inside to be cosy this winter? Roseyln Cottage is a creekside retreat with its own wood-fired hot tub, pushing the boundaries of hygge’s definition during rain, hail or snow! What’s better, Roselyn is only a stone’s throw from the snug pub, The Ship Inn.


Marigold Cottage, Port Gaverne

Forever Cornwall Marigold Green Door Cottages Port Gaverne Cornwall2

When holidaying on the wild, windy and dramatic north coast of Cornwall you’ll need a comfy cottage as a base. Nestled in the beautiful cove of Port Gaverne is our Marigold Cottage, which sleeps four and sports a classic wood burner so you can crank that hygge to the max. There is also a cosy pub right across the road (we see a trend here).


Howthere Barn, Helford

A bath in the bedroom? Yes please. Howthere Barn is a romantic barn conversion offering the perfect escape for people who want to hyyge with someone else. The bed is super-king sized as well, so there’s no reason for your partner to cramp your style.
